Leisurewear International Client Story. Corporate Banking at Barclays

Leisurewear International Ltd

Working alongside Barclays and the UKEF, Leisurewear International is now able cover multiple geographies previously not possible.

Leisurewear International Ltd, the holding company for Minoti, was founded in 1997 and is a Manchester based, owner managed SME business involved in the supply of children’s clothing. As of today, Minoti has strategic partnerships across countries including the USA, Colombia, Venezuela, Poland and Ukraine.

In addition to these franchised retail outlets, Minoti’s clothing is sold across the world, in over 60 countries, via their own online website and via other retailers, with their strategy aimed at having 200 stores worldwide by 2020.

The challenges facing Minoti’s business revolved around an exponentially growing business, accompanied with long trade cycles and unique customer requirements, thus making the need for a financial facility that could support their activity even more critical to their success.

Read our case study to find out how Minoti was supported by UK Export Finance (UKEF) and Barclays to grow their design and product range to cover multiple new geographies previously not possible. Opening numerous doors in new and existing countries.
